Brought back from : Sri Lanka

Patterned Lungis

I had already brought lungis from Kerala, but here in Sri Lanka the patterns were completely different which meant I absolutely had to have some (one of them has already been transformed into a dress, the rest will come in handy at some point, I’m sure). They’re rather cheap and don’t take that much place in a suitcase, so I guess it makes sense to buy them in batches. Anyway that’s what I tell myself!

Two wooden bowls

I don’t know what’s the name of that wood, but I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of looking at its amazing patterns.

Way too many things from Paradise Road

There’s a shop in Colombo called Paradise Road which felt like and exotic version of Flamant (only way cheaper). I could have bought everything but had to limit myself to a canvas tote, two ink blue coffee cups, a perfume burner and two hand-printed cushions.

Stones from Pigeon Island’s beach

On the east coast of Sri Lanka, there is a tiny island which is also a National Park. We went there by boat to do some snorkelling and, since we didn’t bring our cameras there, those strange stones are the only proof we actually went.
